    Would it be possible to take the one Adsense ad that is placed on our hubs higher on the page so that readers are more likely to see them.  By the time readers get past the Q and A, if they even get that far, it's possible that not many see those ads, which means our income gets affected.

    But there is already an Ad showing between the QnA and comments. And then more ads within comments and one after the comments. I think the one after the comments are Adsense ads.

    If the others are HP Ads, I would personally prefer to keep things as they are. Also, moving the Adsense Ad would mean replacing or switching it with the HP Ad, and I prefer the HP Ad program. If they change the layout for people choosing Adsense instead of the HP Ad program, that's a different story.

      I'm pretty sure Marisa had stated that when using the HP program, there is only one Adsense ad and it appears at the very bottom of the page.  I didn't start losing ground until the Q and A thing started, although I would think the lowering of Adsense income would be affecting everybody, but apparently it isn't.

        Yes, there is a page that shows the placement of the ads, see this image https://usercontent2.hubstatic.com/13411153_f1024.jpg on this page https://hubpageshelp.com/money/Learning … am-and-ads

        When using the HP ad program there is just one Adsesne ad at the bottom below the comments. So when I use the HP Ad program I would prefer to keep it that way. I do not want the Adsense ad moving up and taking the place of the HP Ad program ad, which could lower my HP Ad program CPM.

        But the QnA thing that I suggested is just speculation. Did you check your page views in March (Analytics) and the impressions you had on Adsense. And do the same for April. Is there a big percentage change in the impressions (people viewing the ads). If yes, this could be possible. If not it's some other reason. Also by having QnA you are increasing your HP Ad income when people click the question and go to a separate page.

    TT2, You have a different opinion than the rest of us because you are using only AdSense, as you stated previously in another thread. The fact of the matter is that AdSense has rules about placement and also how many ads can be placed on a page.

    The HubPages Ad Program brings us the advantage of Header Bidding as well as Exchange Bidding Dynamic Allocation, both of which bring us a higher revenue opportunity.

    I agree with Brandon to leave it as is. Ad placement has been tested and adjusted for maximum benefit.

      Actually, she has switched to the HP Ad program for a little over a month or so now.

        I just jumped in to read the comments and I have a question. How do you know which one you're using, we need AdSense regardless is what I was told. Am I supposed to only make a penny a day?

          Go here: https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/affiliate/hpads

          If it says the ad program is currently active you are using the HP Ad program else you are using only Adsense.

              So that implies it is active.

                But how do I know which one is on or off on my hubs?

                  It'll be on all your hubs. It's either on or off on all of them.

                    Is there a spot somewhere that let's me see if each hub has one or the other?

          Yes, you need Adsense, but you can turn HP ads on and off.

          You won't make much money until either:

          1. You hit upon a highly searched topic and write a bunch of stellar articles on it that are moved to a network site.

          Or

          2. You just keep writing articles like a crazy writing thing and hope that some of them hit the jackpot.

          Most hubbers do the latter, but if you can find your perfect niche, then that's the way to go.

      I stopped using Adsense only a few months ago because there seemed to be too many glitches and I felt I couldn't trust it anymore. Have done very well since being back on HP, so plan to stay put.  Good to know about the testing, etc...but still having problems understanding why my Adsense views are half  this month of what they were last month!
